CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

09.00am CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION

WHAT’S NEW IN INFECTION CONTROL AND PREVENTION IN DENTISTRY?

This talk will provide delegates with an up-to-date review of the latest information about the impact of the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, other respiratory diseases as well as blood borne virus infections on general dental practice. As we learn more about these infections we have to remain flexible and able to respond to the evolving changes to infection control and decontamination national standard operating procedures and practice based protocols. The talk will reflect on the current scientific evidence in relation to ventilation, PPE, environmental cleaning, occupational health measures and discuss how practices can manage the risk to their patients and the team.

Learning objectives

By the end of this activity, the participant should be able to:

  • Understand their role in managing the current risk of COVID 19 in a dental practice
  • Explain to their team members what changes are necessary to their infection control and decontamination SOP in the light of the latest evidence
  • Review the changes in the guidance on managing Healthcare workers with BBV and other occupational health measures.
  • Appreciate the improvements that can be made in surgery ventilation and implementing HTM03-01
  • Explain the importance of robust Antimicrobial stewardship and the current best prescribing guidance

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcome:

MOUTH CANCER – WHERE ARE WE POST COVID-19?

The impact of a restricted access to primary care services during the Covid-19 pandemic is manifesting in 2022 in the form of mouth cancers that are relatively large with a high incidence of neck metastases. Both these factors will result in the need for more extensive forms of treatment and poorer outcomes for patients. The number of Urgent Suspected Cancer (USC) referrals to secondary care has fortunately now returned to pre-pandemic levels but conversion rates are still low due to inappropriate use of the system. This presentation will include an interactive clinical component to help dental healthcare workers with the most effective use of the USC system for patients found to have a mucosal or soft tissue orofacial abnormality. The Delivering Better Oral Health guidance for the UK, which was updated in November 2021, will be reviewed and the changes in the sections related to mouth cancer, in particular risk factors and prevention post-treatment, presented.

Learning objectives:

Following the presentation delegates will:

  • Understand the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on mouth cancer
  • Have an increased appreciation of the difference between cancer / potentially malignant conditions and benign mucosal disorders
  • Be able to use of the USC referral system effectively
  • Be aware of the cancer related information in the updated Delivering Better Oral Health guidance

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcome:

  • To be aware of anatomical features which can be misinterpreted as pathology
  • Understand how image quality can affect radiological interpretation
